Kindergarten experiences are provided that extend children’s horizons and broad understandings and develop their capacity for initiating their own learning.
We aim to provide an integrated curriculum in a child centred environment, which is relevant to the individuals and groups of children in this setting.
Each child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth are equally important considerations when developing the curriculum. The kindergarten curriculum is planned on the basis of:
- philosophy and theory of early childhood education (e.g. Learning through play and first hand experience, education of the whole child)
- developmental levels of children
- cultural and linguistic background of children
- child’s previous experiences and current knowledge.
The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia: Belonging, Being & Becoming is used as a guideline for curriculum planning. A PDF file with a summary for families can be viewed below.
